NACADA officials Anthony Munyui and Zeka Wekesa who are linked to a Sh12 million scam before Anti-corruption court in Milimani Law Courts on Wednesday August 3,2016

BY SAM ALFAN.

A Nairobi court has deferred plea against six suspended Nacada executive officials linked to a Sh12 million scam.

Others yet to be charged are chief executive William Okedi, tendering committee chairman John Muturi, procurement officer Antony Munyui, Zeka Wekesa, George Murimi and Florina Mwikali.

Wekesa and Munyui appeared before senior principal magistrate Lawrence Mugambi but did not plead to the charges.

Mugambi said all those accused needed to be in court to save time.

The prosecution had earlier requested the court to issue a warrant of arrest against Murimi saying he had not been cooperating.

It was reported that some of the accused had left the country on official duty.

The six were accused of facilitating the procurement of audit firm Ernst and Young as fund manager to disburse Sh99 million to non-existing NGOs.

They allegedly facilitated the illegal funding of 86 non-registered NGOs in the campaign against drugs and alcohol abuse.

They were also accused of being behind the withdrawal of up to Sh500 million, disguised as advocacy funds, from one of Nacada’s banks accounts.

The officials will plead to the charges on August 17.
